BMW 1M Bodyshop Save

Hi all, a much anticipated write up! Sorry for the delays.

Here is a fairly recent job completed on an extremely rare and aggressively styled BMW 1M. An absolute beast and a true drivers car. It came into myself after a trip searching for “Drivers Roads” all over Wales – A great weekend in my opinion!

I quoted a few weeks prior when clean to assess the defects after a recent bodyshop trip. A 2-stage Major Enhancement was in order, which later turned into a Bespoke 3-5 Stage Correction of the sides of the vehicle.

The usual Refined Details safe wash process was then performed and the vehicle was rolled into the unit to complete the decontamination with a clay bar.

Once the machine polishing was completed, it was time for the finishing touches: Paint protection, engine bay, interior and “toothpickery”.

Thank you very much for looking and reading! It was a long one!

28hrs invested in total to get this 1M back to her former glory. A true pleasure.
